Jim Cahill believes his education and experiences in the business world benefit his real estate clients. After receiving a B.A. from Miami University in Ohio, he became a retail stockbroker with RBC Dain Rauscher, where he learned to work hard for all customers, regardless of the size of the deal. As an options trader at the Chicago Board Options Exchange, he learned the art of negotiation under stressful conditions. Finally, as a business owner, he participated in the negotiation, development, and operation of three national franchise units. Jim uses this diverse knowledge to ensure a positive experience whether his clients are buying or selling a home.

A licensed broker since 2005, his hard work ethic has proven successful, as he has helped his clients navigate both the storm of the economic downturn and the current recovery, while earning accolades along the way.

Jim has lived in the Chicagoland area his entire life, growing up in the western suburb of Glen Ellyn and living in the city for over 15 years. While in Chicago, he spent most of his years in Wicker Park, but has also lived in both Lincoln Park and Lakeview.  Jim and his family recently moved to Oak Park, a vibrant community that borders the west side of Chicago.  

While he remains focused on his core business on Chicago's north and northwest sides, he has recently found success expanding his business to the near western suburbs.

During his time in Chicagoland Jim has accumulated a vast knowledge of many of Chicago's other diverse neighborhoods and suburbs, and is excited to pass this information on to his clients.

With a thorough understanding of Chicago's numerous neighborhoods and suburbs, knowledge of the local economic markets and a strong desire to help his clients understand today's complicated market, Jim's services benefit anyone in the real estate market.

Clients are saying:

"Jim was the consummate professional. His knowledge, advice and reasoning were sound. He was prompt with his communication and went beyond the call of duty on several occasions. He may have started out as our agent, but hopefully, we have obtained a new friend. His values and trustworthiness and true assets to his likable personality. Jim is a definite as the realtor of our next property! (Thank you for everything, Jim!)"

"Jim was very diligent, personable and delivered on time. I definitely would like to work with him in the future!"

"Jim was attentive, responsive and very knowledgeable in helping us buy a two flat five years ago and then again this year when we sold that property and bought a single family home. Couldn't have asked for a better guide through the process!"

"This is our second home that we have used Jim to help us purchase. Both times we were looking for a long time (year plus) before making a move. He was always helpful and took us to multiple showings throughout these times. He also assisted us in selling our current home which, through his correct reading of the market, was able to get under contract in one day at full appraisal. Highly recommended."

"Jim was very attentive to our needs. He was a good listener and followed through with what he said he would do. He made every effort to be mindful of our schedules and limited house viewing opportunities."
